Insite Design together with Centro Garden are hosting a Makers Market : http://www.mkrsmrkt.ca/ on July 18th in Centro parking lot on John St. The concept of this retail exposé is to reveal the hidden economy of world class creative “maker” entrepreneurs within our city and the surrounding area.

Says Barry from Insite:

We’re doing this for 3 main reasons:

  1. to provide exposure and access to audiences for these people in order to stimulate their businesses
  2. to position Burlington Downtown as the supportive centre for this culture and
  3. to demonstrate to others; young and old that this maker “do-it-at-home” option is a viable career and business opportunity for those who live in Burlington and the area

Everyone is welcome. I look forward to seeing you all there!! Marianne

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
